The day that American Independence was declared. The day that marked the beginning of a new era, heralded by the Declaration of Independence; the first cry of a newborn nation. The words therein, long after America's time ends, will forever be etched in the annals of history:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."
America; what a terrible thing to hate. It's nigh treasonous to morality itself to hate the principles that America was founded upon, though many do, regardless.
Happy 4th of July, everyone. Whatever your opinion on America, never forget that they're the reason you're not all speaking German at the moment.
